Your constant replay of emotions and thoughts creates your world. Is your world full of whirled wind demands, changes, stress, anxiety, pain, depression, unexpected and sudden setbacks/loss, doom and gloom thoughts, words, and feelings? When life's whirlwind spins you around and around, and your world feels upside down, off-kilter, and unrecognizable...it can be very disruptive. You can learn ways to cope. Finding calm and a sense of grounding balance can happen.
Accepting .. not resisting that the whirlwind is happening is the first step toward surviving the storm. Denial will only prolong the process. Facing a difficult situation that requires your attention, adjusting, and effort. It's not the strong one that survives a storm, it's the one who knows how to adapt and surrender to their reality to persevere with faith, resiliency, and purposeful action.
Assess and prioritize your situation and break it down into manageable parts. Identify the most pressing issues and prioritize your actions to help you focus your energy on what truly needs attention to prevent feeling overwhelmed. In the midst of a whirlwind, don't neglect your own needs. Nourish your body with wholesome food and rest. Seasons pass and you can learn to flow with life changes instead of being paralyzed with fear.
Flexibility is a superpower enabling you to deal with a crisis. Accept the reality of your life changes and be willing to explore alternative solutions and support from family, friends, faith community, counselor, etc.
Remember your anchors, like prayer, music, nature, reading, bathing, exercising, dancing, or some form of creativity. Remember Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz story was caught up in a whirlwind and she found herself in an unfamiliar world full of fear. Just like Dorothy, your anchors to return to HOME (a state of well-being) will be courage, heart, and your brain (wisdom).
Remember the whirlwind will subside, In time, you'll find your rhythm and perhaps a new normal. Celebrate milestones and progress: Acknowledge and celebrate even the smallest victories along the way. Be patient with yourself, trust your abilities, and believe in your capacity to rise above the challenges. With optimism, prayer, support from others, love, patience, and developed coping skills you can reclaim your inner peace. May God's mercies and grace be with you.
